Family Options For Value At Theme Parks
by Theresa A
My family and I are coming to Gold Coast and are looking for family options for theme parks that will offer us the best value.
Our family consists of 2 adults and 3 children ages: 16, 14 and 11.
What is the best option for us if we would like to visit: Wet n Wild, Movie World, Sea World, and Dream World.
We are from Samoa and this is our first family vacation ever away from the islands. I hope that it will be enough time for us to enjoy such theme parks.
Thank you, Theresa
WOW! That is exciting your first trip away from the islands with your family. That should be a nice slice of time to enjoy the Gold Coast.
I would allow a day for each theme park you mention and you will still have time for some of the other activities around the Gold Coast.
There are a couple of things I need to let you know. Firstly, at the Gold Coast theme parks, children are classed as 3 to 13 years, so your 14 and 16 year old will need adult tickets.
There isn't a combination pass that covers all four of the parks you want to visit, however, the best value to see SeaWorld, Wet n Wild and Movie World is a VIP Pass.
This pass is not always available so please check our theme park passes page
which has the latest information. These theme parks do not have a family pass option.
Dreamworld is not part of the same group so you would need to buy a ticket for them separately. The only other option is to get a Holiday World Pass from them which covers both DreamWorld and Whitewater World. They have a family pass option which is for 2 Adults plus 2 children, however you are 4 Adults plus 1 child because of their age restrictions.
Based on what you have mentioned, the best value option for just these theme parks is to buy a combination pass for the SW, WnW and MW and then an individual day ticket or World Pass for Dreamworld. You can purchase these online
ahead of your visit.
I would also suggest you have a look at the other deals and combination passes
, which may offer you some extra activities with good discount.
I hope this answered your question, please leave comments or feedback below and don't forget to like, tweet or share this to spread the word.
